    DIY: Building a Mini Quadcopter Part 9 – 12 Amp PRO RapidESC (SimonK)

    (This is part of a multi-part series on building a FPV mini 240mm quadcopter)

    To power the SunnySky X2204S 2300kv Motors you need an ESC (Electronic Speed Controller).   For this,  I’ve selected the next generation speed controller from Quadrysteria.  They state the manufacturer of this ESC is the same as the one that made the popular BlueSeries and features newer, higher-quality MOSFETs that run cooler and offer higher peak current — apparently these ESC are so fast that you can double your PI gains.

    DIY: Building a Mini Quadcopter Part 8 – SunnySky X2204S 2300kv Motors

    (This is part of a multi-part series on building a FPV mini 240mm quadcopter)

    Now that the FPV mini quadcopter frame has been selected we need some motors to make it fly.   For that, I’ve selected 4 SunnySky X2204S 2300kv motors ($23ea).   It was between these or the Tiger’s MN1806 2300kv, but paying $43 each for the Tigers would take this copter out of budget (which is going overboard already) — plus, I like the look of the SunnySky’s.

    Somfy ILT Z-Wave Interface works with HAI OmniPro II/Myro


    A friend of mine is in the process of building a home and requires a lot of outdoor sun shades.  We have been trying to find a cost effective way to control them and get feedback of the position they are in.  There are countless ways to get this kind of feedback but all of them are very costly.  It seems like we’ve found the solution… Somfy has released a Z-WAVE interface which works with their ILT line of motors which give you status feedback and control into the Z-Wave environment and will enable optimized performance through Myro:Home touchscreen panels.  The plug-in design also allows a simple connection to the ILT 2-way communicating motor head and can be setup in less than a minute. As an added bonus, the interface doesn’t require additional external power which keeps the energy footprint low too.
